The Flagstaff International Relief Effort is organizing a sale of traditional Mongolian yurts to help fund its humanitarian mission. The traditional Mongolian ger is a handmade, felt-covered, wooden frame structure used by nomadic cultures in Mongolia and other parts of Central Asia. The ger is known as a "yurt" in Turkic languages.
The handmade gers have many uses including as a home, guest house, for camping, a studio, office, meditation room, yoga room, playroom and more. The gers will cost between $5,000 and $8,000, depending on size. For more information, visit fireprojects.org/mongolian-gers/.
